When I first started thinking about who I could interview for the My Beauty Uniform series, my friend Erin was the first person who came to mind. Erin is one of the most beautiful women I know, is always impeccable dressed, and has the most lady-like style that I simply adore. She is the kind of person that is as sweet as she is fun, and is always dressed to kill. Enjoy.
What is your morning/evening skincare routine?
During my morning shower I use Neutrogena oil free acne wash on my face and Dr. Teals body wash, my fave is eucalyptus and spearmint, smells so good and contains essential oils. For my face after shower I apply an oil-free face lotion with a 15 spf, typically I use the generic Walmart brand. Then apply my 5 minute face (let’s be honest takes closer to 10-15 minutes); loose face powder, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara. And of course lipstick. Don’t leave home without it.
To remove makeup in the evening I use Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes, one of my favorite “tools in the tool box”. Removes makeup with out all the rubbing and scrubbing of traditional face soaps. I follow up with the same brands oil free acne wash.
If you could only use one makeup product for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Body and Face Lotion
Do you have a signature scent?
Not necessarily a signature scent, when it comes to lotions and body sprays I always gravitate towards eucalyptus, spearmint, or lavender scents. The last 2 years the only perfume I’ve worn is Estée Lauder Sensuous Nude, can’t find anything I like better.
Lipstick. Yes or No?
Shower or bath?
Both: I shower in the morning and take a bubble bath at night. I live for my bubble baths. (And a great bottle of red wine.) (Oh, and a great book!)
How do you put together a head-toe “look.”
For a head to toe look I generally start with the top and bottoms(pants or skirt) or dress. Then pull in colors from those items with my accessories, earrings and necklace. Shoes are last, depending on if I want to be comfortable or fashionable.
Dresses, skirts, or pants?
As much as I love dresses and would wear them everyday if I could, I tend to wear more pants for work and comfort.
What is one trend you love?
Skinny jeans with booties
What is one trend you hate?
Peplum tops (are they still a trend?)
What is your definition of beauty?
Happiness = Beauty
Confidence = Beauty
